Four Kisses, based on four stanzas of the following original poem explores musically the human interaction of a kiss in its various modalities. The compositional language ebbs and flows between the contemporary concert and action music realms.
sinking into the river of your arms
into the waves of tangerine squeezes
fumes of your love
forming beds of plasma
heart plucked and nailed
for heat of a dark night
